A Halo Infinite developer has acknowledged that the fan community surrounding the game is “simply out of patience” and tired of hearing developer 343 Industries talk about upcoming updates instead of delivering them.
Write on Reddit, Halo Community Manager Brian Jarrard said the studio was unhappy with how it couldn’t meet player expectations. There’s no magic bullet to make things better, Jarrard said (through VGC).
“There are indeed a lot of challenges and constraints. We are certainly not happy that we cannot meet the expectations of the players and the community, it is a difficult situation which will take time for the team”, he explained.
343’s current focus is Season 2: Lone Wolves, which arrives in May. More details on this are expected soon. A blog post about Halo Infinite Season 1 “results” and feedback is coming today, April 1, but that probably won’t matter much for Season 2, said Jarard.
In his Reddit post, Jarrard acknowledged that fans want more content, and they want it faster. But that might not be possible due to other factors at play.
“There’s a lot of production planning, costing, scheduling, hiring, etc. going on, which doesn’t really lend itself to regular detailed updates. We understand that the community is just out of patience and frankly, I think it’s understandable that the words are tired.” said Jarard. “We just need some time for the team to work out the details and then we can definitely share as much as we can.”
Halo Infinite saw the biggest launch in Halo history last year, with 20 million people check the clearance right out of the gate. But as mentioned, gamers have called on 343 to launch new content, playlists, and other game features under its live service model. the the long-awaited campaign co-op mode has recently been further delayedwhile Forge Mode is not expected until Season 3.
